hand forging samurai sword blades process About Shinwa:

Shinwa swords are made by hand using traditional methods in the ancient sword-making township of Lonquan. The sword-making history of this town can be traced back to the twentieth year of the Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty – exceptional sword making continues there still today. The swordsmiths of Lonquan can apprentice for up to six years before they begin to forge these functional works of art on their own.

Each Shinwa sword is hand forged at temperatures of up to 1,100 °F and continuously heated, folded, hammered and shaped before being oil quenched and then straightened. Damascus steel blades are folded as many as ten times to yield up to 2,056 layers of premium Damascus steel. After quenching the blade is then ground and hand sharpened and polished by the swordsmith on a series of wet stones. Each set of these wet stones contains a finer level of silicate particles, which produces an even sharper edge. In the final stages of this painstaking process, the tsuka is wrapped and tsuba and other fittings are added before a thin coat of oil is added to the blade to prevent corrosion.

Incredible! Reviewed by Patrick Domenici on Apr 30, 2018   5 out of 5

Fantastic finish, beautiful tsuba, and sharp enough to slice into a barrel just like in the video. My only complaint is a loose fuchi (collar between the handle and guard), but that was easily fixed. If it wasn't for that, I'd give it a six star, but due to that I have to knock it down to a five. 10/10 would buy again, ESPECIALLY at the great price from TS!

Great for the price Reviewed by David Matthews on Mar 10, 2018   5 out of 5

A very nice katakana, a huge step up from the stuff you'll find on amazon! However the dragon design is MUCH more distracting in real life. The transfer and detail is GREAT! but unlike the photo, the outline is Neon Green. The sword can with a slight edge out of the box, so it's not dull, but if you plan on cutting anything, you'll want to spend some time sharpening it.

5 stars sword arrived today, was left out on the steps in front of my home. rain soaked box was torn but the inside box was in fairly good shape, open the sword box and it is a beauty to look at and is a real sword for real use. I love the color of it and the pattern of the steel is wonderful , spent a couple of hours following the instructions on how to dry it then re- oil it and it is a beauty in all ways . i have to admit was a little nervous about it but the quality of this is outstanding.. I will reorder soon thank you it is not a wall hanger It is ( sorry for the pun) a true sword in every way I Love it

I Was Skeptical about buying a Shinwa sword because I wasn't able to find much about the quality or reliability. But I took a chance because the sword looked really good and i could just return it if I was not satisfied. The Sword is great! Its beautiful and sturdy and the craftsmanship seems top notch. I am not a sword expert, but after years of buying cheap swords I can tell you that this is not one. After a little sharpening it was able to cut through plastic, and wood. GREAT Sword Very Satisfied!!

I know this Shinwa Katana was just added to the site, but as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I am not disappointed! The patterns of the red and black Damascus steel are amazing and I've been straight up destroying bamboo stalks with it! Don't wait to buy this awesome sword!!! Do it, you WILL NOT REGRET IT!
